Summary
  • Presents the lives and literary output of more than 60 of America's most read authors in concise, stand-alone segments presented in chronological order
  • Program 7. If the lost generation authors were searching for identity and meaning, the group of authors in the middle of the last century rejected everything that mainstream America embraced. Ultimately they would speak to the baby boomer generation, first as children, then as proactive teens, and ultimately as adults in the later part of the century
  • Program 8. This half century spanned generations of writers who witnessed or participated in WWII, Korea, The Cold War, The Civil Rights Movement, Vietnam and multiple wars in the Middle East. Their diverse experiences influenced them intellectually, spiritually and emotionally which contributed to the eclectic collection of thought-provoking literature of the period
